There are several poems with the title - Remember Me - so we have gathered three of them together on this page, and hopefully, we have included the one which you are seeking.
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
Do not shed tears when I have gone but smile instead because I have lived.
Do not shut your eyes and pray to God that I'll come back but open
your eyes and see all that I have left behind.
I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me but still I want you to be
full of the love we shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or you can be happy for
tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday.
You can remember me and grieve that I have gone or you can cherish my memory and let it live on.
You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your back on the world or you
can do what I want - smile, wipe away the tears, learn to love again and go on.
